French composer, Pierre Max Dubois (1930-1995) significantly contributed to the wind repertoire. Sinfonia Da Camera for Wind Sextet was published in 1965 and remains prominent in the ensemble repertoire.
Dubois' music is characteristically light-hearted with unusual harmonic and melodic textures. Sinfonia Da Camera for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Saxophone, Horn and Bassoon reflects Dubois' compositional characteristics and is made up of three movements; 1) Entrance, 2) Gigue and 3) Variations. Sinfonia Da Camera is essential to the advanced Wind Sextet repertoire. Dubois' work makes for an exciting, varied and enjoyable performance for players and audiences alike.
